It must be about Thanksgiving time because I’m heading to Antarctica. That seems to be a holiday tradition for me. IMG Senior Guide, Aaron Mainer, and I leave for Punta Arenas, Chile early Tuesday. We’ll meet our team on Thanksgiving day and finish packing for our flight to Antarctica. 8 climbers are joining us on this expedition. Early season is my favorite. The mountain is fresh and fewer folks are there. Downside is that it’s a bit chilly. Heck, it’s Antarctica, what did we expect?
I’ll try to keep folks at home posted on our progress. All is done via satellite phone. Once we’re on the ice we’ll need 6 or 7 days of reasonable weather to get up and down the thing. We’ll keep you posted. Oh, have some turkey for us.
